All camp counselors will carry walkie-talkies and will keep in communication with the main office where one of two weather radios are located. Office personnel will also ring the announcement bell which can be heard in all areas to signal that counselors need to escort campers back to the main areas.

What changes should we expect due to COVID-19?

This summer please expect to see changes to the way camp runs as we navigate these new waters and follow CDC guidelines. We will be limited to 60 campers per week with one counselor per 12 campers. This counselor will remain with the same cohort group from arrival to departure each day. Siblings will be in the same cohort. We appreciate your patience as we learn and work to keep everyone safe at camp.
